92 year old Dorothy Steel - merchant tribe elder in Black Panther decided to try acting at 88!!!
If we don’t step out, we - for certain - will not ever know if what we want will ever be energized into existence.
This is my continued practice now. If there is an idea, followed by a desire, I know to take one step towards making my imagination, my reality.
What I have dubbed my creativity unleashed.
What Inspires me about what Dorothy Steel has done, is that she wanted to try acting and she did. To the extent that when she was offered to audition for Black Panther, she almost turned it down, until her grandson reminded her to step out on faith.
I’m glad she did because knowing others have stepped out and succeeded on a dream remind me to continue taking steps too.
“Keep your mind open and keep faith in yourself that you can do this thing. All you have to do is step out there.” Thanks Dorothy! Your actions are youthfully exuberant and optimism I am grateful to gain!
And maybe most important is enlisting, involving, and connecting with others our desires so they can remind us, lovingly, when we faultier along the way.
For me - it’s painting again so back to the studio now for - I think greens and golds on this rainy Portland day.
Is there an inspired step you want to take? Share below and see what happens next. You'll at the least get a coaching cheer from me!
If Dorothy hadn’t taken the first step, she wouldn’t have been a delightful addition to one of the biggest movie ever!!
